I just recenly upgraded my new server from inn-1.7.2 to inn-2.3.2.
Of course, I created a new history file and new history.db from 
what's on the news spool.  I also followed the instructions for
creating overview buffers, which appear to be working, aside from the
problem below.

expireover is core dumping each night during news.daily.

news(#):/var/news/etc> ls -al core-5.23 core-5.24
-rw-------   1 news     news     21052448 May 23 01:28 core-5.23
-rw-------   1 news     news     8371232 May 24 01:11 core-5.24

news(#):/var/news/etc> file core-5.23 core-5.24
core-5.23:      ELF 32-bit MSB core file SPARC Version 1, from 'expireover'
core-5.24:      ELF 32-bit MSB core file SPARC Version 1, from 'expireover'

groupbaseexpiry is set to true and ovmethod is set to buffindexed
in inn.conf.

The relevent section of news.daily output is below.
